Planters to avoid.

There are certain containers that should  not be used as planters. One of the things about planter gardening is that you can put a plant in just about anything and call it a planter. However here are a few exceptions:
  • Using planters with a small opening or neck limits air circulation and makes watering difficult.
  • A shallow planter will dry out very quickly.
  • Never use use a planter without drainage holes.
  • Never use a container  that previously held chemicals or caustic materials for a planter.
  • Never use a biodegradable container as a planter. Things could get interesting half way through the season.
